Your best motorcycle travel pic EVER!

Hi everyone,
I was using the search option to see wether this topic has been on the list. So time to start it:

Everyone has a favourite of his travels. So c'mon, let's see! One pic and a short description.

I'll do the starter with that one:



I took that one in Kaikoura/NZ. The most difficult thing was to get the spermwhale in the right position

Now your turn!

Cheers

Dirk

You can try to find the bike related stuff, but it's pretty dark. I took it resting the camera on my helmet if that counts for anything...

I can't make up my mind between these two. So here's two.

Looking up.



Looking down.



Fremont Peak in the Mojave Desert, CA.

They're not art but they are memorable.

That first picture posted to start this thread is unbelievable!

Every picture comes with memories, and I have too many good
memories from motorcycling to post just one:



It's really easy to take good pictures in Utah. this is one of my favourites from April this year. The road on the far left says it all for me.








Guanella Pass, CO (last year)






On the way to Rollins Pass, CO









Current troublemaker, future president




And finally, my GS in it's natural state:

WOW! - some great shots on this thread.

OK my submissions below. I cant make my mind up which one I like the most.

A track somewhere around Mono Lake CA - taken on last years Range of Light BMW Norcal Rally - my first real dirt on the GSA - loved it!



My second submission taken in Death Valley at this years advrider 'DV Daze' - I was lucky enough to be given some excellent coaching by Chuck Brown - he rides his GSA as though it was a 250..
